there was actually a loss of 121,000 government jobs, and a gain of 67,000 private sector jobs. private sector jobs are the sustainable ones, the ones that we want. we want to wean ourselves off the government sustaining this economy, as you and i have talked about regularly. want to wean ourselves back on to the private sector. hiring those people. those people have many, buy things, more jobs in the private sector. that's one. number two, it's a smaller job loss, so the trend of job losses is decreasing. number three, every time we get one of these reports, we get a revision from the previous month. that revision shows that in july, we lost far fewer jobs than we expected to lose. so you take those three things together, and to me, that says it is not good, it is a glass one quarter full. but it is the right direction, and if you carry on this trend for a little while, we would be back into job creation, hopefully, hopefully, within a few months. >> this trend. take a look into your memory bank here of recent data.
